Ever since I released my most recent Body Beast results, I’ve been getting a ton of emails and messages about the nutrition plan that I followed while going through the program. Below I’m going to talk about my Body Beast grocery list and the macros I followed throughout my entire 3 month Body Beast journey.
First let’s talk about the macros. I’m 5’7″ and took in around 3,000 calories per day for the first 2 months. I also took in a fat/carb/protein ratio of 30/40/30 during that time span. Really, that’s just % of total calories of each. For example, 40% of my calories came from carbohydrates. Normally I would follow a 20/50/30 ratio, but I took in a lot more healthy fat to help with inflammation with Lyme Disease. During the last month I changed around my nutrition to lean out. In the past I have gotten excellent results from carb cycling. I would go one day of high carbs and then one day of 1 carb portion or less. This time, though, I decided to do 2-3 days of 1 or no carb portions and then 1 day of high carbs. This was very tough because my energy was very low, especially on that 3rd day of no carbs, but I got excellent results with it. In addition, I dropped my calorie intake to closer to 2,500 during that last month and added in some cardio. To keep track of your calorie intake and macros, I suggest using the My Fitness Pal app.
Now I’m going to move to my Body Beast grocery list. Before I get into it (and so I don’t have to put it before every single item listed), everything I ate was organic. The reason I choose organic is because organic food doesn’t contain chemicals, pesticides, or GMO’s. I shouldn’t have to explain by now how shitty those are for you. If you’re trying to get any type of results, you don’t want that crap in your body.
So there you have it, my Body Beast grocery list that I used while going through the program. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to me at Josh@JoshSpencerFitness.com. If you would like me to be your Coach, just click here!
